Inter-Tribal Council of Nevada, Inc. Child Care Development Fund is a child care subsidy program that provides services to eligible families in 17 tribal communities within the state of Nevada, including the urban areas of Reno, Sparks, Carson City and Las Vegas.

Eligible families who live in the urban areas participate in a Certificate Program; allowing them to choose the type of provider that is best for their child.  CCDF reimburses the child care provider for a percentage of the family’s child care costs.  All reimbursements are  based on the families’ average monthly net income and family size.

There are 17 tribally operated Child Care Centers, Afterschool Programs and Certificate Programs throughout the state.  The following is a list of tribal communities CCDF serves, and the programs each tribe operates:

  • Elko Band Council – Certificate Program, Child Care Center and Afters School Program

Child Care Centers are encouraged to enrich childhood development, focusing on early childhood education, school readiness, and cultural education. After School Programs provide assistance with tutoring, homework and reading requirements. Both Child Care Centers and After School Programs encourage children to live healthy, happy lifestyles.

In order to be eligible for the CCDF Program, children must be:

  • 12 years of age or younger,
  • and be of Native American descent
Parents must be:
  • employed,
  • enrolled in an educational or job training program,
  • and/or actively seeking employment through a job search or work force agency.

Parental Choice: CCDF would like to empower parents to make their own decisions on the child care that best suits their family’s needs, and to provide parents with a broad range of options.

CCDF is a current member of 1st Lady Michelle Obama’s “Let’s Move” Initiative. Training and materials are currently being offered to all Child Care Center and Afterschool Program Providers.
